Top 10 dashcams of 2019 (with videos)

Dashcams (or Dashboard cameras, or Car cameras) are a very popular accessory for an increasing number of drivers all over the world. The dashcam has been an almost standard accessory for many people in Russia and South Korea. The dashcam increased a lot in popularity more recently in many Eastern European countries, China and the UK. Some car insurance companies in certain countries even give a (big) discount on your car insurance when you use a dashcam. The increasing popularity of dashcams has also caused a much bigger competition in the dashcam market. There are uncountable varieties and types of dashcams, making it also much more difficult to find the right dashcam.

Before buying a dashcam, it's importent to have a few things in mind. Dashcams come with all kinds of features, some more interesting than others. Your situation and the purpose for buying a dashcam are very important factors in determining which dashcam is right for you. Below we mention the most distinguishable characteristics on dashcams on which you should decide. 

1CH or 2CH

1CH (1 channel) dashcams are dashcams with only one camera. This is the 'normal' type of dashcam most people use and which you mount to your windshield. 2CH dashcams are dashcams with an extra rear camera. Most 2CH dashcams are just a variety on the 1CH dashcam and come with a separate rear camera with a long cable that is connected to the front dashcam. There are also Taxi type 2CH dashcam with a rear camera fitted in the main body that records the interior of the car. Both cameras always record the videos simultaneously and store the videos on the same SD card in the front dashcam.

Memory capacity

Every dashcam must be fitted with a MicroSD card to store the video files on. Dashcams always record in shorter fragments of several minutes in order for the loop recording to work. This loop recording makes sure that the dashcam will keep recording even when the card is full. This way, always the last videos are stored on the SD card. The length of this period is dependent on the memory capacity. Most recent dashcams support MicroSD cards of up to 128gb or even more, which is the equivalent of about 16 hours of FullHD videos. In order to get the most of your dashcam, make sure you choose a dashcam that supports enough Memory for you situation. If you want to store a complete working day on you dashcam, make sure you get at least 64gb of memory.

LCD screen

An LCD screen on a dashcam can be a very convenient feature for installing the dashcam and to view the recordings on, but the dashcam will probably be bigger in size too. Some dashcams even have bigger touch screen LCD's, others do without LCD screen and are a lot more discreet. Dashcams without LCD screen are usually fitted with Wifi in order to access the camera and it's menu. It's all just a matter of taste, one is not better than the other. 

Wifi

Dashcams with Wifi allow you to access the dashcam trough your iOS or Android phone and tablet. This can be a very useful addition in order to make downloading and sharing the files more easily. Many popular brands even have their own App, making the whole experience very efficient and convenient. To view the recordings on a dashcam without wifi, you will need to either connect the dashcam to your PC or remove the SD card from the dashcam and insert that to your PC. Note that Wifi does not mean that you can access your dashcam from a remote location. The dashcam can only be accessed when you are within a range of about 10 meters from the dashcam.

GPS

Most recent dashcams in the €100+ price range are usually fitted with GPS. Dashcams with GPS allow you to view where recordings have been made and to see the driven route. GPS dashcams also show the current speed in every video. Most brands have their own GPS player for PC to view all information.
